The overall wealth of a country often influences the country’s level of accessible health care and, ultimately, the health of the country’s citizens.  However, developed countries often face similar public health issues as developing and middle-income countries.  For example, HIV and AIDS are major public health concerns in both the United States and in many less developed sub-Saharan African countries.  Through collaboration, research, and direct care, community/public health nurses can provide expertise and leadership in international health issues (Maurer & Smith, 2013).  Understanding the processes involved in caring for populations provides the foundation for collaborative practices in international nursing care.

Global Health Topics. (n.d.). Retrieved from


I chose maternal health but if you feel more comfortable writing about another topic, feel free to do so.

Suppose you have been asked to submit an article for publication in your organization’s newsletter, about a global health topic and how policies and practices at the local level can affect global health.  Choose one global health topic from the list (or use another of your choice):

Mental health.

Communicable diseases (HIV/AIDS, influenza, malaria, tuberculosis).

Non-communicable diseases (cancer, lung, and heart disease).

Maternal and child health (prenatal care, midwife education, childhood vaccinations).

LGBT health.


Global water supply and safety (, n.d.).

Look for very recent peer-reviewed articles, statistics, and professional nursing information on the global health topic you selected.


For this assessment, develop an APA-formatted research review article that covers one global health topic of your choice.  

In this assessment:

1.  Identify your topic.

2.  Provide background information and statistics on the topic, including the global areas most affected by the topic and the types of health care issues most often associated with the topic.

3.  Describe the factors that impact health and health care delivery in the global areas most affected by the topic you selected.  These factors may include not only culture and tradition, but also politics, economics, and social attitude.

4.  Explain the influence of altruistic organizations (Peace Corps, Project Hope, religious and non-religious missions, and so on) on health and health care practices in the global area specifically associated with the topic.

5.  Describe the interventions implemented to address the health care issues associated with the topic.  Include both conventional and unconventional interventions.

6.  Explain how the health care decisions and practices at the local level (the area most impacted by the topic) relate to health and health care delivery in other global areas.  This is not limited only to best practices, but could include poor health care decisions and practices.

Identify evidence-based interventions that are effective, efficient, cost-effective, and equitable for promoting wellness and disease prevention in the specific area and population.

Maternal and Child Health


Global health in this context is used to refer to a health issue that has a direct impact on the population. There is a wide range of global issues which relates to ill-defined intersections between environmental health, bioethics, anthropology, veterinary medicine, political science, economics, and health services research (Birbeck, 2013). Current research has placed more emphasis on the challenges associated with global health delivery and public health improvements in the global setting that has limited resources (Birbeck, 2013). With the increasing concern of global healthcare, this paper focuses on maternal and child health with a special focus on childhood vaccination, midwife education, and prenatal care.  

Background Information and Statistics Recent years has seen an increasing research on global health not only from the general public but also among the academic community. Maternal and health care (MCH) is a critical health care service that is provided to mothers who in this case are at the age of childbearing, the service is extended to their children mostly in terms of vaccination. MCH targets women at their reproductive age, which is cited to range between 15 to 49 years (Dykens, Hedrick, Ndiaye & Linn, 2014). Increased cases of adverse maternal and child health results from poor accessibility to prenatal and antenatal care, inequities in access to health services, and poverty. According to WHO (2018), almost 99 percent of all maternal and child deaths occur in developing nations. WHO also noted that at least 50 percent of these deaths are reported in sub-Saharan Africa and one third in South Asia (WHO, 2018). In addition, most…
